Volunteering and the Law: Avoiding Pitfalls
Thursday, Sept. 22 from 1 – 4 p.m. with Abigail Salisbury, J.D., Salisbury Legal, LLC

Many organizations rely on volunteers to accomplish key parts of their missions. However, there are quite a few legal obligations that come along with those volunteers, and nonprofits are often unsure about their potential liability and how to comply with legal requirements. This session will help you to understand the landscape of volunteer law, and you will come away with useful information on minimizing risk and implementing best practices when working with volunteers.

What Every Nonprofit Manager Needs to Know about Employment Law
Tuesday, Sept. 27 from 9 a.m. – noon with Albert Lee, Tucker Arensberg P.C. 

Most employment law claims arise out of the alleged conduct or decisions of mid-level and front-line supervisors rather than CEOs. This class will help supervisors and managers understand how to handle day-to-day situations without creating undue employment law risks. Topics will include interviewing and hiring (legal and appropriate questions); evaluating, counseling and disciplining; and handling common HR issues (including absenteeism, accommodation, insubordination, and more).
